Contaminated fresh never mentioned if produce was washed and rinsed well, if would be save.
I guess it is better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for the awareness Carrie.

I see that Okla. is not on this list. I wonder if we aren't on there because no one reported it or if the really are no cases here. A friend of mine has a child that got sick from this, but he was in Kansas when he got it.
Just need the names of the packaged salads that were at the heart of the disease outbreak.
Thanks, Carrie!
